The Life of God in the Soul of Man

27 11 2007

Grace Church has been praying through “The Great Eight” (Romans 8 ) in our church prayer meetings this Fall. The entire chapter is remarkable in its scope beginning with “no condemnation” and ending with “no separation.” Not to be overlooked, tucked away in the middle of the eighth of Romans, are these amazing statements:

(9) However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him. (10) If Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness. (11) But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

How do we know we (or another) is a Christian? God lives inside of him!
